I agree but ...!
Yeah dude, I was at all 3 of these R.R.'s (which I taped myself got busted in the 1st set and then the bands roadies told the busting security to give me back my equipment and let me continue) + 2 McN.'s and indeed the Shakedown here is cool with Phil on the old bass with the 10 button ala Europe '72 but if you think this one is funky it ain't nothin' compared to the show I also recorded at U.C.L.A. later on Nov. 25th!

What a Shakedown!
And what a mix!
The flame is burning hot on Shakedown. I have never heard Bobby be so funky, or as craven said, "Th(is) Shakedown is as funky as James Brown's G-string after he snorts an 8-ball and plays a game of beach vollyball." Check out Bobby 4:30-4:58, and throughout. If you listen from 8:00- 8:25 it sounds as if there is another guitarist. And Phil! Phil stomps all over this one.
The boys were on this night as the first set keeps it up with Uncle>River, Candy, FOTD & Mindlewood getting a nod. Very young versions (4th performance of each) of Althea and Sailor. Althea is more under construction with different lyrics then what Garcia finally settled on. The second set is also a keeper. The opening trifecta is zippy and pleasant enough but the jam begins with He's Gone and it's pure GD from there. And yes, Bobby does screw up the lyrics to Truckin', but the sun rose today as well.
